(Start at the beginning HERE.)
"Alpha and Omega" - Day 15 Revelation 22:13 I am the ALPHA AND OMEGA, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
We may not know where our lives are going, or indeed, where they came from but Jesus has the whole story. We see glimpses of our beginnings: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart" (Jeremiah 1:5), and "Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." (Psalm 139:16). Then Jesus speaks of the end, "I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades." (Revelation 1:18) “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:3-4). Let us give thanks that we are not going through this life without meaning, but rather we are living God's story with Jesus as our guide!
